Trent University professor Zailig Pollock (author of  A.M. Klein: Story of a Poet [1994]) served as the General Editor of the Klein Committee from 1990 to 2011 and edited or co-edited four of the eight volumes. Trent professor Elizabeth Popham edited or co-edited two volumes.

Numerous undergraduate students served as research assistants for volumes published between 1990 and 2011, including Jennifer Bistolas, Catherine Cragg and Luke Tromly (Letters).

This series was one of the first truly scholarly “complete works” projects on a Canadian writer and its completion was a landmark in Canadian literary scholarship.
